  •  I too have been thinking of it, I still backpack (0+ / 0-)

    and I want something light, for late fall which means temps down to -10. The synthetics just seem to be cold and big and heavy.

    I think maybe the dead geese are plucked by machine and it damages. Seems like there ought to be a way.

    When we slaughter chickens my wife plucks some feathers off under the neck then drains the blood to make a sauce. They never mind the plucking under the neck. But then chickens are bred over thousands of years to be docile and it's just a little under the neck not the whole body. Chickens are mean nasty little  creatures, about had enough of chicken ranching.
